Happy Monday everyone! Today is a busy week filled with all kinds of fun - and just a quick reminder that due to Family day, plus teacher's convention, there is no school next week for students.
For the last few weeks in math we have been focusing on our large number multiplication skills. Grade fours do 3 digit by 1 digit and grade fives two by two digit multiplication. This week we will be doing the assessment of those skills. If you haven't yet done so, please spend some time in the evening asking your child to show you their prefered strategies. (if you need more information about these go to the Math section of our blog and take a look at our Muy Importante strategies booklets - these help to explain the steps)
Today: Our final gymnastics class was today. Thank you very much to the wonderful coaches who taught us so much! If you'd like to see the last set of pictures and videos please follow the link.
Wednesday: Our Valentine's party will take place in our classroom last period. (please see the letter on the blog, and sent home, last week for the details)
Thursday: Math weekly # 9 is due. This is a day earlier than normal to make sure that all work is complete before our winter carnival Friday.
We will also be making our crystals in Science Thursday. Please send in your glass jars before then.
Friday: Students are encouraged to dress in plaid and wear toques and sashes in the Quebecois tradition as we celebrate La Carnival D'hiver at LGMS. At 10:30 we will have a bilingual presentation in the gym that includes music, dance and storytelling by: Francofolie. In the afternoon students will participate in a variety of activities. Most will take place outside so appropriate clothing is very important! Students are also invited to bring a labelled mug for hot chocolate.
Feb. 19-23: No school for students
